An Air Force non-commissioned officer at Nellis Air Force Base has been removed from her position of authority after using profanity and singling out some of her subordinates based on their race in a video posted online.
Over the weekend, TSgt Geraldine Lovely went live on Facebook to rant about her personal issues with disrespectful subordinates that are “black females.”
“It pisses me off that they have no f***ing respect and constantly having an attitude,” she said.
“TSgt Lovely has been removed from her supervisory role while leadership continue to gather facts regarding this incident,” said Major Christina Sukach, with the 99 Air Base Wing Office of Public Affairs at Nellis AFB.
Lovely reportedly removed the video -that was originally posted live on Sunday morning- after African-American women commented to say her statements were racist.
But after the video was reposted publically, the Air Force was made aware of the video that quickly accumulated 800,000 views.
“This is inappropriate and unacceptable behavior in today’s society & especially for anyone in uniform,” said Major Christina Sukach. “Leadership is aware and is taking appropriate action.”
The Air Force says they investigating to see if this is a broader issue on the base.
“While the actions of this individual are inappropriate and unacceptable, we are using this unfortunate situation to continue a dialogue with our Airmen about the topic of good order and discipline, as well as adherence to the Air Force Core Values,” said Sukach.
